An Honest Memoir – Book Review
I was going to write an article about author Billie Eilish because I felt like she did a great job on her book. Unfortunately, I feel that the end result was a book that should have been a much better one. In this article, I will talk about the flaws that I found in her book.
The problems in the book stemmed from how long it took for the story to be told. The story itself was pretty interesting, and it actually came off as being very well written, however the end result felt a bit too rushed for my taste. I wanted more from the book, so that’s why I felt that way.
Many of the characters were not fleshed out enough. This is something that happens often in the memoir genre. It can seem like the author really has a lot to say about the issues that they are writing about, but it may seem as if they only spent time on one or two points. However, with Eilish’s book, I felt as if there were many more characters than there needed to be.
I also had a difficult issue with her use of pronouns. She uses “it” for an individual and “he” for a group. Both of these pronouns may sound a bit odd to some readers. For me, it made the book less cohesive. I also think that it made the book seem a bit wordy.
Overall, the book was enjoyable. It had some great scenes and it showed you a little insight into Billie’s life. It just lacked the cohesiveness of the book in my opinion. There were times when it felt as if it was trying to fit all of the viewpoints into one book. Personally, I think that this is something that is necessary, but it doesn’t do it for me.
Overall, I enjoyed reading the book. The ending left me wondering where it would go next. It was well written, but the details were rushed. All in all, I think that the book worked well as an actual memoir, and it served its purpose as a memoir as well.
I don’t know if I would recommend this book to anyone who hasn’t read a memoir before, but if you have, then it might be a bad experience. For me, it was okay, but there were better memoirs out there that I can look to for my next read.
Overall, I liked the book. It did have its good points and it had its bad points. If you want to read a memoir that you enjoy, I would recommend this one.
